Nov 5, 2010 StarCraft II: New Race Videos
We're pleased to announce the latest additions to the Game Guide section of the StarCraft II community site: three new videos highlighting the races of the Koprulu Sector -- the resourceful terrans, the enigmatic protoss, and the all-consuming zerg. These videos are narrated by an old friend from the Wings of Liberty campaign, and offer you the chance to learn more about StarCraft II's opposing factions. They also serve as an excellent primer for those who might be less familiar with the game and eager to learn more. You can find each video in the terran, protoss and zerg sections of the StarCraft II Game Guide.
